A two minute video recorded Mohamad calling BN Youths to take action and counter “slanderous allegations” by the opposition media and to convince voters to support the ruling government.
“If there is a coffee shop disseminating slanderous statements against the government, you (BN Youth) storm into the coffee shop, overturn their tables… If you’re picked up by the police, I will bail you out,” he had reportedly said.
Apologise for ‘table-flipping speech’, ex-servicemen tell Negri MB
A GROUP of retired police and military servicemen want Negri Sembilan Menteri Besar Mohamed Hassan to apologise over a speech they allege was inciting youth to “take physical action” against those who slander the government.
The National Patriots Association (Patriot) president Brig Gen (rtd) Mohd Arshad Raji said that if politicians continue to make inflamatory speeches, then the next election will not be free of violence.
“Regardless of whether there is a police report made against Hassan, the association urges the police to investigate the speech and to take whatever action permissible within the law,” he said in a statement today.
Arshad said the video showed how uncultured and uncivilised Hassan could be, of wanting to remain in power, not by peaceful, democratically acceptable means but by inciting and propagating violence against those who criticised the government.
“His conduct is unbecoming of a politician and a state leader.
“Such gangster-like conduct is totally wrong and unacceptable in our Malaysian culture.
“His speech wasn’t well received by the public at large and many who viewed the video had expressed scorn and disgust.”
Negri MB says ‘joking’ about violent reprisals against slander (VIDEO)
KUALA LUMPUR, March 20 — Negri Sembilan Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan reportedly said he was only joking when he called on Barisan Nasional (BN) Youth in Rembau to take “physical action” against any business premises seen slandering the government.
English daily theSun reported that Mohamad, who was speaking at the Majlis Pelancaran Briged Gempur Pemuda Umno Rembau on Sunday, said his words were taken out of context and was meant to “inspire confidence”.
“Those were just words to inspire confidence among the youth. It’s not like I want them to carry out these actions for real. I always joke around, you can ask all the reporters that cover my press conferences,” he reportedly said.
